Product Description

For 47 years, since it was first published in 1962, this book has been the standard textbook for the dissection of honeybees. It underwent a gestation period of over ten years but emerged the better for it and has now run to three reprints and this revised edition. It is a clear and practical guide to both the anatomy and dissection of the honey bee making the subject totally understandable even to those who have not had any formal training in such work. It is divided into three sections: the first part gives a detailed and logical description of the honeybee's anatomy, the second is a step-by-step guide to dissection of all castes, while the third has 20 illustrated plates making the directions easy to follow.

They said it was the best book on the subject and now I believe it is.
Amazingly illustrated and easy to read and understand.
I highly recommend this book to any serious beekeper studying for their Microscopy Exam with the BBKA.

A very good guide to the inside and outside of the bee. The emphasis on descriptive text and line drawings helps rather than detracts by simplifying organs into shapes removing the shades and helping you "get your eye in"

Although I bought it initially for a Beeking Exam, I found it an excellent book for microscope work, a reall classic

Not enough diagrams 11 Nov. 2013
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is a detailed description of the dissection of the honey bee and provides ample detail on dissecting technique. The problem that I have with the book is that there are very few diagrams of the bee and this takes away from what the book is trying to explain. The diagrams that there are are insufficient and do not provide an overview of the anatamy of the bee. Otherwise, for a person interested in learning about dissection it is a good, but very pricey book. I also think that Understanding Bee Anatomy, Ian Stell, The Catford Press, 2012, provides a much better guide to bee anatomy and those wishing to learn about microscope techniques should also look at Exploring with the Microscope by Werner Nachtigall.
